The iPad Pro might be the ARM-based Mac that we’re waiting for: Apple is paving the way with iPadOS

iPadOS features a new Home screen with more apps and a Today View for information at a glance.
Abbas Ali for TechRadar UK:
There’s been plenty of speculation over the past few months on Apple porting MacOS to the ARM platform. Apple’s SoC team has been on fire, producing industry-leading processors for the iPhone and iPad that can match, or even beat Intel’s offerings in certain tasks.
But with the announcement of iPadOS, I wonder if Apple has now changed directions and instead, is looking to bridge the gap between MacOS and iPadOS.
From a hardware perspective, the iPad has always been ahead of the curve but its iPhone-based operating system has always held it back. That changed with the announcement of iPadOS at WWDC 2019. Maybe that ARM-based Mac that we’ve been hoping for is actually the iPad growing up to become a replacement for some of our Macs.
MacDailyNews Take: We think there’s more to come on the ARM-based Mac front beyond iPads running iPadOS.
